Mike Maryniuk

Winnipeg, Manitoba

Mike Maryniuk was born in Winnipeg, but raised in the rural back country of Manitoba. A completely self-taught film virtuoso, Maryniuk’s film world is an inventive hybrid of Jim Henson, Norman McLaren and Stan Brakhage. Maryniuk’s films are a visual stew of hand-made ingredients and are full of home cooked wonderfulness. Half Icelandic and Half Scando-Slav Maryniuk’s family resides on the banks of the majestic Icelandic River near Arborg, Manitoba.
